We have adopted three of our dogs from Ok Save A Dog. Without their tireless efforts to do the hard work of rescuing, many people like us would not have our fur babies!! Thank you for all you do.

OK Save a Dog is a wonderful rescue. I adopted Hamilton from them 10 years ago. He is now a registered therapy dog who works daily at our elementary school making children smile!

I can’t say enough good things about OK Save a Dog. They came highly recommended by our granddaughter, who got her dog from them a few years back. We saw their posting on a Thursday, filled out an application Friday morning, and had an appointment to meet “Willow” at their beautifully maintained facility at noon on Saturday. It was love at first sight. Despite her previous circumstances, she was beautifully groomed, had received all her vaccinations, and was spayed and micro-chipped. It was abundantly clear that their primary concern was for the animal and making certain she was going to a proper home.

Kim and Sunshine are fantastic. You can tell they really care about what they do and are always willing to go above and beyond. I’ve had my rescue pup for close to three years now and wouldn’t trade him for the world.

In 2007 two weeks after my dog died, I started looking on the Internet at other dogs. I saw a photograph of one I liked at OK Save A Dog. I emailed and Ms. Bowers answered me promptly and told me some information on the dog, then gave me directions on how to find them. I went out to Prague, met her, met the dog and fell in love. The dog had no only been abandoned, but had been badly abused and OK Save A Dog took care of him and made him able to trust again. That was the 7th of March 2007, he is now about 13 years old and is my best friend. I am partially disabled, live alone except for Robbie (the dog) who is my best friend and constant companion and has made the last 11 1/2 years joyful.

We rescued our 2 sweet puggles in Sept 2007! Kim was wonderful and I’d adopt again from her in a heartbeat.

I adopted a little chiweenie named lilly and she has been such a blessing. The nonprofit organization is amazing and always there for you. They truly believe in helping animals find forever homes and getting them well before adopted.

I thought about getting new member to our family for a long time but the time was never quite right. One day while at work I found OK Save a Dog online and they had a sweet little dog the named Patches. I completed the application and was so excited I was approved that I left work and took the 1 hour drive the same day to pick her up. The process was so easy and Kim quickly responded to my emails. I am so grateful to OK Save a Dog and to Kim and Sunshine for dedicating their lives to the dogs, especially my sweet Molly. I can’t imagine her not in our lives.

I got my "look-a-like" dog from OKSAD 2-27-2014. The ladies were very helpful with information and advice for caring for my new adoption. We have been inseparable ever since. I signed up for the OKSAD mailing list at that time and I have seen the pictures of some of the severely damaged dogs that these folks have rescued and nursed back to health. And I've read the testimonials from the wonderful folks that have adopted from them. We all appreciate the dedication and devotion and the endless hours that these folks give for our best friends.

I adopted my sweet Sophie a little over a year ago from Ok Save a Dog. I was so impressed with their screening process and making sure the dog would be well cared for in their new home. I definitely recommend them to anyone who is wanting to rescue a pet.

I adopted a young lab mix 18months ago from ok save a dog. They are the real deal. Keeping the dog's best interest first. I came all the way from
South Florida to get her. It's the best thing I ever did. Thank you to the team that works so hard to keep these dogs safe. Ok Save A Dog, your good people..

OK Save A Dog is great! Believe me when I say great I mean GREAT! Like a free oil change or two when you buy a new truck great. All greatness aside, this group of dedicated people selflessly labor for the good of animals that cannot do so on their own, and provide loving care for animals and their new companions all over the US and sometimes abroad.

OMG, where to start . . . I found my latest pup at OK Save a Dog. I am so thankful that my application was accepted and I got to adopt Buddy (formerly Toby). This rescue does so much with so little--only two people working to save as many dogs and puppies as possible. I know their resources are stretched at times. They vet their dogs, as well as their applicants, which is so encouraging to me. I know that when they send a dog to a home, that home has been fully investigated. Great people, great dogs, great organization! My whole family has adopted dogs from OKSAD and I will soon be looking for another one from them!

My family has adopted 3 dogs from OK Save A Dog! They are a wonderful organization. When we got the dogs they were healthy, clean, and well taken care of. Our vet was very impressed with their initial care and that they had immunization records provided. And they were already microchipped! Great rescue and great folks!

I have adopted three dogs through OKSAD. I love them. Sunshine and Kim are some of the best people I have ever met and they truly care about the dogs they work with and their adopters.

Three years ago we adopted an absolutely perfect terrier mix. She was a horder dog and so shy that if we sneezed she would run and hide. Now she is the most personable dog I have ever met. If you sneeze she runs to check on you and give kisses, or boop your nose with a little paw.

So a earlier this year when we started looking for another baby to play with her, we knew exactly where to go. Sunshine is amazing and one of the greatest people have ever met.
